Volts | Scotland's Top AC/DC Tribute Band
SCOTLAND'S NUMBER 1 AC/DC TRIBUTE
Meet the band
Volts are Scotland's premier tribute to the world's greatest ever rock n' roll band, AC/DC. Formed in 2005, Volts have consistently focused on replicating the classic AC/DC sound. The shows are not for the faint-hearted - Willie (Bon/Brian), Craig (Angus), John (Malcolm), Tony (Cliff) and Iain (Phil) give nothing less than 100% every night to bring packed houses two blistering hours of non-stop AC/DC classics.
Drawing from the broad span of AC/DC's history, Volts mix a bit of the old with a bit of the not-so-old...the big numbers that everyone knows and loves peppered with the occasional connossieur’s choice.
Volts have graced many a venue large and small across the nation, including the Bonfest Bon Scott memorial event in Kirriemuir, The Big Ball in Wrexham, the Renfrew Ferry in Glasgow, The Albert Hall in Stirling, The Picture House in Edinburgh (supporting Saxon) and the Midstock Festival in Midlothian with Fish, The Hoosiers and The Fratellis.
Volts truly is THE band for the party-hard and the die-hard alike. Not an AC/DC fan? Expect to leave the show converted!

Alan Russell, 'Headmaster' at Dreadnoughtrock, Bathgate, said:
"VOLTS – Scotland’s No1 AC/DC Tribute have been around in Scotland and touring the UK for over a decade now even picking up some top support slots for mega bands such as Saxon, Fish and even The Fratellis along the way not forgetting the Bon Scott memorial show in Kirriemuir. I have had the pleasure of booking this great bunch of lads a couple of times in the past few years now and definitely look forward to call upon their very accurate and thundering show in the future to play at Scotland’s longest running rock club once again that always hits the spot event with the most critical AC/DC fan. Their no nonsense and no gimmick approach paying tribute to AC/DC, certainly in the time I’ve got to know the guys has produced two SOLD OUT shows with their take on the Bon Scott and Brian Johnston eras of the band – something that is getting quite rare across the UK. Most tributes seem to cater for one era or another – seldom both all wrapped into one hell of a night. So if there was ever an endorsement the Club and I could make about this very professional outfit that would be to simply re-book VOLTS without doubting that another top drawer performance would be on the way. You can be sure one of their many future dates will be back at Dreadnoughtrock Bathgate."
Amanda Robinson and Bill Gilchrist, Bellfield Tavern, Kilmarnock said:
"We would like to thank VOLTS for playing at our venue The Bellfield Tavern, Kilmarnock. What a gig they performed...almost 3 hours nonstop....fantastic talented musicians they had the place bouncing. Great band totally professional and committed to their art. Thanks for a great night and cannot wait until your return in 2017."
Morag Lightning, Cuminestown MCC, Aberdeenshire said:
"If you want AC/DC then look no further than VOLTS. These guys deliver, from Willie's amazing stage presence to all the extremely talented musicians' precision. We hired them for our MCC rally and they went down a storm, great interaction with their crowd and great value for money. We salute you!"
